A book review of Grief & Loss: Grief and Loss is an invaluable educational resource and deserves a spot on the bookshelf of any lawyer who represents families in wrongful death cases. The book will help lawyers of all experience levels better understand their client’s grief and emotional suffering and, in turn, enable them to better communicate that pain to a jury.
Book Review in Trial Magazine: Before becoming an attorney, I was a counselor serving substance abusers and their families. I was also severely burned in an acetone flash fire, and I became a lawyer after my own lawsuit. I’ve experienced the grief process firsthand from both a personal and professional perspective. Grief and Loss: Identifying and Proving Damages in Wrongful Death Cases not only reminded me of what’s important regarding grief and loss; it also helped me think more broadly about representing clients while reinforcing my own belief in the therapeutic power of litigation.
